To the 53 year old with COPD

No you don't give up - I know what you are going through. I have COPD myself since 2011. And yes some days are harder than others. My lung capacity is 22% but thank God that's better than 2% so we keep on fighting.

Doctors know a lot but they don't have the final say - that's up to the Lord and him only. So my advice to you is the same as I do - try to exercise as much as you feel comfortable. And keep your faith in the Lord and ask him every day to help you and he will. I will keep you in my prayers also.

Your friend in Christ Ricky
